A Boston Aquarium Wedding

The first time I introduced you to Kate and Jeff was for their engagement session in Boston's Fort Point neighborhood. I wrote, "Kate and Jeff spend much of their free time down by the water. Whether it's going for a morning run on the river or sipping cocktails by the harbor, Boston's waterfront has become an intergeral part of their relationship." Fittingly this past weekend the Boston couple was married on the city's waterfront at the New England Aquarium!! Guests sipped cocktails admist penquins and fishies with a reception overlooking Boston Harbor. For Kate and Jeff, who met, live and work in the city, celebrating their nuptials in Boston was the perfect choice.

It was hoooooot & humid, a typical New England summer day!! But despite the opressive heat, Kate & Jeff took the day in stride, enjoying each and every moment they shared together and with those that they love. If I could choose one word for their day, it would be friendship. It was clear that Kate and Jeff are dearly loved by their friends, who stood by their side with smiles throughout the day, full of support and admiration for the couple.

Kate and Jeff, thank you for inviting us into such a special day!! I hope these images transport you back to each moment you shared together!! Enjoy!!

The day started at the stunning InterContinental Hotel in downtown Boston.
